After a fall, prayer brings freedom

From the June 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I am so grateful for how prayer in Christian Science has healed me physically many times. Right along with healing, this prayer has also improved and transformed my thinking and my life. 

One example is when I had a fall on concrete pavement a few years ago. As I struck the concrete, I fell hard on the keys in my hand, which were pressed against my chest. There was terrific pain around my heart. 

Once I arrived at home I took a bath, and the pain faded temporarily. But the pain became great again around bedtime, such that I could not sleep. As I sat in bed, I had all of my Christian Science books and periodicals nearby. I decided to really dig into them and read, study, and prayerfully listen to God.
